Alas, I'm still on my midday coffee (which has yet to kick in - damnit,
hurry up!!  I have a report to write!!).

The Fonzi reference was to help remember the title _Insecta Mundi_.  (It
certainly helps me, since my Latin is deplorable.)  To Mike (both of you),
thanks for being a good sport :-)  The Iowa State Library has the journal,
so I'll pop over when that issue comes in and check the derivation of
_Megapnosaurus_.  Could it have something to do with the huge fenestra in
the skull...?
